Quarry formerly connected to Cromford and High peak railway. It is situated near National stone centre car park and has a few interesting features inc what looks like a saddle tank from a loco upside down in use as a water tank and an interesting workers shelter built in a back wall in quarry. It is quite easy from the quarries layout to see how the mined stone was transhipped to the CHPR wagons as the rock cuttings to the quarry faces where the tracks were located are clearly defined. The quarry is also near the base of the CHPR Middleton incline where the incline rope return wheels etc are still in their pits and visible.
